Η εμπορική αποτυχία αυτής της ταινίας [μαύρης κωμωδίας] του Μιχάλη Κακογιάννη είναι ο λόγος που το σάουντρακ του ΜΘ είναι από τα λιγότερο γνωστά. Περιλαμβάνει ωστόσο εντυπωσιακά στιγμιότυπα “πειραματικού”, ψυχεδελιζοντος ροκ , όπως αυτά εδώ. Βρισκόμαστε, σημειωτέον, στο 1967.

The commercial failure of this film [a black comedy] by Michael Cacoyannis is the reason why MT’s soundtrack is one of his least known.
It does, however, include impressive snapshots of “experimental”, psychedelic rock, like these ones here. We are, after all, in 1967.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
